    Greetings,

    I've been recommended this community by an old friend..

    I'm currently mainly playing WoW, but have recently purchased a shiny new machine capable of much more, so who knows? horizons ready to be expanded for sure.

    My first true gaming experience.... well that's an interesting one. Started playing with the aforementioned friend right around the time TBC was released (first expansion to Wow) my "machine" had a whopping Pentium 3 processor... so you can imagine, it wasn't exactly smooth.. anyways, I managed to find the only remaining PCI (yes, PCI, not Express!) Graphics card in existence and managed to pull my rig beyond a steady 10 fps :D From there we played WoW and CS: Source mainly for a good long time......

    After WOtLK Real life took over and I no longer had the time for gaming... until MoP, from that point I managed a good year or two until... alas real life took over once more (sigh).

    Anyway, I now have a "real" job! and 2 kids (how the hell did that happen??)

    reading about this community makes me feel like it's a good match for me and my antiquated kind, so please accept this application and we can enjoy many an hour forging alliances.... yada yada yada typical gamer mumbo jumbo....

    Let's just play some games and have fun right?

    Much Love,

    Dan.

    Hi Dreeder and welcome to TOG.

    Congratulations! You have passed our stringent don't die before 25 application requirement and have made it into TOG.

    Keep in mind there is more here than the division for that awesome game you have signed up for. There are other flaky games which all have their own division and other things of wonder, joy and wtf.

    Public Forums (Philistines only or less then 25. Same thing)
    Member Forums (General chat, cat videos, VR, laboratories, Steam and Discord invites)
    Member News (If you have a mind like mine you just laughed)
    Simulation and Sports Divisions (This is for simulation and sports games!)
    Strategy, RPG and other Games (This is for err... Strategy, RPG and other Games)
    FPS (Brutal and horrific death. Lots of fun!)
    MMORPG (Also brutal and horrific death but sometimes ponies)
    Operations (The name you picked is stupid and you want to change it? Policies and stuff)

    :D
